Must be something with AFB FamCamps...Becoming the norm for bad/low budget facilities. Even though there is full hook ups and could be great places to visit and/or stay, it seems as though the AFB Outdoor Rec personnel have little to no care about the FamCamps. Grass is ridiculously high and with the ponds near by, its a breeding ground for the mosquitoes that are waiting in swarms. Asked if they could bring me a lawnmower to use and was told they should be down here in the next few days to mow as they didn't have enough people employed to maintain it. Also, was told they wouldn't spray for the mosquitoes due to being afraid it would harm the dogs and cats. Called the check in office only to be placed on hold for over 30 minutes and finally hung up and went to the office. No base map, local map(s), or information was provided. Had to ask for a key card for the laundry room. Issued an algae warning about the ponds and had to sign a paper about providing shot records for our pets or they had to stay in off base kennels. Its obvious the command has little to no concern about the image being left at the FamCamp or they would step in and demand better upkeep and management.
